Services Database Stop4life Stop Smoking Service in Pregnancy (Telford & Wrekin Area)
The core elements of the service are:
- the provision of behavioural support and pharmacotherapy delivered via a time-limited intervention to support people who smoke to successfully and permanently stop smoking;
- progress is assessed after 4 weeks and success is assessed after 12 weeks or delivery date, whichever is later;
- interventions are delivered by a stop smoking advisor, who has received stop smoking service training for one-to-one and/or group support and full NCSCT training;
- accredited staff will offer stop smoking services to current smokers of a tobacco product providing one to one or group support and advice to clients who wish to give up smoking;
- all interventions should be multi-sessional with a total potential Service User contact time of at least 1.5 hours (from pre-quit preparation to four weeks after quitting). This will ensure effective monitoring, Service User compliance and ongoing access to medication;
- the sub-contractor shall use CO monitoring to verify the smoking status of service users at 4 weeks, 12 weeks and at delivery. Service users smoking status will also be verified by 6 months after setting a quit date by Stop4Life; and
- interventions should offer weekly support for at least the first four weeks following the quit date.
